The new gymnasium at Shorecrest High School is nearing completion and is expected to be ready for the school year in September.
Finish work continues inside the gym in preparation for the beginning of fall sports and the opening of school on Sept. 10. The gym floor and bleachers have been installed in the main gym, while work continues in the locker room, office and classroom areas.
Construction continues on the performing and visual arts building, as masonry walls and steel roof framing are being installed. This building is scheduled for completion in December and will house band, orchestra, drama and visual arts.
The old gym, shop and the “J” building have been demolished and work will now begin on the new, three story main academic building at Shorecrest, with completion expected in early 2014.
Construction of the six new Shorecrest tennis courts is now under way at Kellogg Middle School (see attached photo). The Shorecrest boys tennis teams will practice and play their home matches at Shoreline Park this fall. Construction of the new courts is highly weather dependent, so it is uncertain if the new courts will be ready for a portion of the fall tennis season.
